Vette,
The transom is Aqua from the Solomon islands (old aussie has the same timber) the sides and bottom are only my plywood layers as I am having painted sides.....

You better get a wriggle-on though, only around 6 weeks to get that engine in, put a deck on, slip all the running gear in and jamb it on a trailer for the trip south :lol:

Hi all,
Love this being off work and working around home..getting so many jobs done!!
10th hours of sanding yesterday and clean up the shed ready for undercoat...up early this morning and perfect weather for spraying....masked up the transom..(had a change of plan on the colour scheme and will be going white bottom with pin stripe with a dark brown metallic on the sides)..
Set up and sprayed 2 coats of a 2 pac epoxy white..very pleased with the result...cant wait to sand and final prep for colour and clear coat....
